You could use JBOD to put both Disks to one virtual disk.
- Never did it but should keep the data on current disk.
But you can not increase the size of you windows partition.
- partition magic can do it but is not recommended for windows c:\\ partition !
So you will have at least 2 partitions then.

As I sad before: just put the second disk in normal.
And make a partition on it, in windows.
Put your data there and you have more space for new apps/games/programs on your old disk.
If i do what you said last basically i just install windows on it than put other data on that drive? BUT how do i access one windows from the other?

If your looking to turn one already loaded and one blank drive into RAID0 it ain't going to work without reformatting both of the drives. I would suggest you get another drive for backup and put all your important files on there. Next you would have to setup windows all over again, but with a raid driver. Then you can just reload your old files onto the new system.

That was what I meant all the time.
Sorry that you got me wrong.

The best is you go again into drive management and press f1.
Than type dynamic in the search line and read all about it yourself.
It is a bit to complex to tell you all about it (at least for me with my poor English)...
